A Shameless Plug for Tulsa-Area Produce

In case you've been napping (as we have), we want to remind Tulsa shoppers that it's the season for local produce. AltTulsa wants to recommend the Tulsa-area farmers markets.

We are particular fans of the Cherry Street Farmers Market, which takes place every Saturday morning at the corner of Cherry Street (15th Street) and Peoria in mid-town Tulsa.

The Cherry Street folks move the whole affair to Brookside on Wednesday mornings from 8 a.m. to noon. The Brookside location is 41st and Peoria.

Beyond Cherry Street, there is the Pearl Farmers Market, held this year on Mondays from 4:30-7 p.m. For those not familiar with mid-town, the Pearl District is at 6th Street and Peoria.

The suburbs also have farmers markets, including Jenks, Owasso, and Claremore.

Our advice: Check 'em all out.

I love the Cherry Street event, and this year, we joined a CSA with one of the vendors. So far, I have been extremely pleased.

i went to Pearl last monday. my advice to the folks who go is to be certain to walk all the way through the thing. i was on the verge of leaving, a little disappointed, when i found two vendors i'd missed hiding around the curve at the end. they had marvelous produce and were charming to boot.
